Professional Background

This is my third year in education and my first year at Our Lady of Good Counsel School! I received my B.A. in Linguistics and B.A. in German Language from Stony Brook University. During this time I discovered my love of teaching while tutoring elementary language learners, and went on to earn my Master's in Teaching from Stony Brook University.

In continuing my professional development, in 2017 I took the Responsive Classroom Course for Elementary Educators, which teaches an evidence-based approach to education that focuses on the relationship between academic success and social-emotional learning. I strive to implement it's techniques in my classroom everyday!

I am so excited to be here at OLGC with such a supportive faculty and staff and an amazing community!

Favorite Activity Outside of School

My husband and I love to hike together, especially in Great Falls! I also enjoy gardening and try to grow my own herbs!
